Why we still have Regular? I think it's Cost.. It's no longer on the Paten list to get their high prices for it
and as soon as ( if ever) The Logs become the same, R will go by the wayside as well
I recently was going to do a Test with using some R and went into Wal Greens and asked How much for it?
$63 per Bottle!
I looked at the Pharmacist and Said R U Sure about that? And She said yes..
I laughed and said Wal Mart has it for onyl $24, why are you ( WalGreens) asking so much more for it?
She had no idea..
I told her, that is Highway Robbery and outright Theft
Thus I went to Wal Mart and got it
and Yes, I have been Complaining to Walgreens as well.. moving up the ladder thru Corp. offices
I also caught my VA for Charging me Brand Name Prices for Other Meds I get ( pills) when in fact they are Generic.. Can be bought thru Wal Mart for $10 for 90 day supply
The VA charges $27 for the same 90 day supply..
Reglardless if it is Generic or Brand Name
And Guess what they mostly give out? Generic..
My Congressman and Senator said they will look into it..
I'm sure they will..
So Contacted my VFW and American Legion and got them on the Band Wagon now..
Using R for Pizza and Slower Digetsing Foods? Yeah, I used to do that too
Fact is? Those first few hours your sugars will go Up, till the R kicks in
Thus Need to take both a Log and a R..
I just take the Log and In 2 hrs take a 2 hr bolus and its been fine ever since, doing that.
Been 7 yrs now..doing that..
And Like Terry- Ditto- We Need A Shorter Onset, Faster Peak insulins.. These Logs take Way too long..
Especially for Corrections..
